Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William are getting set to be the hosts to a number of supporters of a given charity that will involve a selection of top chefs, who will create tasty masterpieces at a lavish dinner
The event, which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, will be held at a stately home only a short drive from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s home in Norfolk. There will be a total of around 90 guests who will come together for the delectable eats, all to give thanks for their support of a charity which Kate has been a fervent advocate.
People shares about the specific charity that this dinner is focused on.
“[Kate and William] will thank supporters of one of Kate’s favorite charities, East Anglia Children’s Hospices. The charity, which hopes the evening will bring in around $700,000, is focused on raising around $14 million to build a new hospice. Kate helped launch that appeal back in 2014.”
The event is titled A Taste of Norfolk and is being hosted at Houghton Hall by a couple who are dear friends with the young royals. The Marques and Marchioness of Cholmondeley have offered their estate where Kate and William’s little Prince and Princess were spotted at during a family outing last month.
This lavish affair comes the day following Prince William’s 34th birthday. It’s not a bad way to follow up a day of celebration. The top chefs who will help to make the five-course meal it’s most exquisite are Galton Blackiston, who owns Morston Hal on the Norfolk coast, Sat Bains of Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham, Clause Bosi of Hibiscus in London, Tom Kerridge of The Hand and Flower in Harlow, and Mark Edwards of Nobu.
As People relays, the dinner will conclude with a word from author and EACH Ambassador Anthony Horowitz and from the Marquess of Cholmondeley.
The event organizer and EACH advocate Emma Deterding shares her deep appreciation for Prince William and Duchess Kate’s involvement in the charity and also released a statement to thank all supporters who attend the dinner, commending them for their support of a hospice that invests its time and money into improving child development and health.
“I have seen at first hand how incredible and important the development of the children’s hospice movement is since its beginnings in the 1980s. I continue to be amazed by how hard EACH works to ensure that hundreds of children with life-threatening conditions and their families in East Anglia get the best care possible. The passion and commitment that the staff demonstrates and the care they offer both in the hospices and the community is inspiring and humbling in equal measure.”
It is well known that Kate Middleton is an avid supporter of various charity work, mainly to do with the welfare of children and mental health. She and her husband, along with William’s brother Prince Harry, have additionally joined forces to support the new initiative known as #Headstogether campaign. The charity is to change the negative stigma attached to those who suffer from mental illness.
Most recently, Prince William has come forward and made his deep sadness evident over the recent tragic massacre that took place at an Orlando gay night club only a week ago. Not only that, but the Prince made the bold move to be the cover feature for the men’s gay publication, Attitude, as Salon reminds.
